Kevon Looney enters health and safety protocols

Warriors center Kevon Looney will miss Saturday night’s game against the Grizzlies at FedEx Forum after entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols, a Golden State spokesman confirmed with The Chronicle. The specific reason Looney, 25, entered the league’s health and safety protocols remains unclear. Though the team isn’t sure how much time Looney will miss, players in the health and safety protocols for coronavirus contact tracing typically sit out seven days. That would have Looney missing four games: Saturday in Memphis, Tuesday against the 76ers, Thursday at Sacramento and Friday against the Hawks.

Kevon Looney another name to watch as far as trades

Kevon Looney is a name to watch. He is one of eight players who have a guaranteed contract next season and, of them — Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Draymond Green, Wiseman, Jordan Poole and Eric Paschall (the other seven names) — would seem least likely to be in the rotation. Wiseman will be taking his starting spot at some point soon. It’s actually a player option. Looney could opt out of the $5.1 million he’s owed and test free agency, but that appears unlikely. So he’s a candidate to either be used as salary filler if an extra chunk is needed for matching purposes — Oubre plus Looney equals Oladipo, for example — or a veteran to dangle (he could help a team like the Nets) for either a minor asset or salary and roster flexibility for next season.
